You do realize that plan violates several of our constitutional rights as Americans correct? Do you simply not care about that, or are you just looking out for yourself in this specific instance?
I cannot fathom why someone would be FOR quarantining people, it takes away our rights.
You don't have the right to walk around spreading death.
When you become an extreme danger to the public, you violate your pact of citizenship with your fellow citizen by not acting in a reasonable fashion. Noone blames you for being sick. Remove yourself for the duration, and act in your own and everyone else's best interests. You violate the privilege of living in a society that allows this freedom otherwise.
A temporary restriction on your right to freedom of movement for a couple of weeks to prevent you killing hundreds of people is not a serious breech of rights.
Instead, we could enact laws that say that after the first person you kill with your deadly germs we'll throw you in jail for manslaughter. Then you'll be in for several years.
Take your pick.
